Hi folks,

is there a generic way for terminfo handling of pkgs that implement
terminal emulations? For example x11/rxvt-unicode comes with a new
terminfo file and tries to detect the proper location to install this
in it's configure script - which can also be overriden via --with-terminfo=dir.

I'm looking for a generic way to derive such a configure args, and an
easy solution to deal with the result in the PLIST.

A quick "fgrep -ri terminfo /usr/pkgsrc" turned up nothing coherent.

Any suggestions?
